Hi Arnold, I have a lot of experience with Agapanthus in pots. Firstly, try loosening them apart with your fingers. Then, get your sharp knife out and cut them apart if you need to. They are very tough plants, multiply well and don't mind a bit of rough treatment. I too have had them in the pot where all the soil has disappeared and I have even seen them growing soil-less in a container of water only and flowering in this condition. They are used here in Australia by our local councils as road plants and will survive almost any growing condition you can give them. They are considered weeds here in parts of Australia. Good luck. regards, Bill Richardson, Ixia King Autumn 16c-30c. at present West Gippsland, Victoria, Australia firstname.lastname@example.org Ixia Website: http://www.angelfire.com/ri/ixia/ "Almost any garden, if you see it at just the right moment, can be confused with Paradise" Henry Mitchell ----- Original Message ----- From: "Arnold Trachtenberg" <email@example.com> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org>; "Pacific Bulb Society" <email@example.com> Sent: Monday, May 01, 2006 8:01 AM Subject: Re: [pbs] Agapanthus > I purchased an Agapanthus "Ellamae" from Plant Delights two years ago > and it flowered the first year outside here in Northern NJ.
